Southern Baptist Convention to praise Obama?

A Resolution to Honor Barack Obama by Southern Baptist
Conservative Bible believing Christians are in shock that a proposed resolution honoring President Obama has been endorsed by Southern Baptist President Johnny Hunt. President Obama who spent his career as a US Senator promoting anti-Christian policies and has pushed this nation away from its Christian heritage. Yet SBC President Johnny Hunt is pushing for a resolution to honor President Obama.
President Barack Obama has spent his career pushing the anti-christ agenda of promoting abortion . Do we wish to honor a man who promotes federal funding of more abortions (murder of innocent babies)? This man is not worthy of honor, but should be condemned for pushing an ungodly agenda.
How can it be that Johnny Hunt, President of the SBC, is supporting a resolution endorsing the honor and election of President Obama. For what ever the reason, is beside the point. Obama does not deserve praise or honor from a Christian conservative church organization.
Obama is pro Gay
This week, Obama began offering expanded benefits to gay partners of federal employees. Discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender employees in the workplace to be banned. Obama strongly supported gay rights during his presidential campaign and is now delivering on his promise to make the United States more gay friendly. In other words, before our eyes we are seeing the destruction of our Christian foundation and seeing it replaced with anti-Christian policies. Does the Southern Baptist President and the SBC organization wish to honor President Obama, a man standing against all that we belive? We need a resolution calling upon our liberal Congress and our President to repent, and follow the Bible. The Bible example is to suppress the Gay lifestyle and agenda. Our Christian forefathers have passed many laws to suppress openly gay behavior. The opposite of Christianity is to break down those barriers as Obama is doing. Gays will not enter into the Kingdom of God:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10: "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Obama is Pro Abortion
Barack Obama throughout his career has aggressively supported the abortion of little babies. The destruction of children is simply murder, violation of the Commandment, "Thou shalt not murder", and was known as Baal worship. Do we have to be reminded of how ungodly this is? We need a resolution of condemnation of the policies of our President not one of praise.
The headlines say:
SBC President supports resolution celebrating Obama's election.
SBC president Johnny Hunt says the denomination can support the resolution without supporting President Obama's politics. "I think it is certainly a great thing to do, to celebrate the election of an African American," says Hunt. "That was a great day in our country; we celebrate it as a country -- and I think, [as] Southern Baptists, we can do that." Johnny Hunt says that he hopes that the Convention can stay clear of debate of controversial topics and stay away from nation moral issues that have been debated at conventions of the past. Yet he endorse a resolution that praises the election of Obama as an African American.
It appears that SBC President Johnny Hunt is determined to keep the SBC Convention from being culturally conservative. In the past the SBC has endorsed traditional marriage over gay marriage, been strongly pro life, supported the Ten Commandments and Judge Roy Moore, and the SBC has upheld conservative values. Johnny Hunt wants the SBC to stay away from conservative hot button issues.
A resolution of praise and honor of Obama may be the wrong message and would distort the conservative Biblical image that the current generation of Southern Baptist leaders have been promoting in this decade.
Contact your local Southern Baptist pastor and ask him to vote "No" on the Obama resolution at the national SBC Convention.
